Unleash the raw, unpolished beauty of Classic Underground Hardcore Drum Sound

Riot Drums is a fully sampled drum kit that was inspired by classic 90’s Hardcore albums. We dug out some old cassette tapes & vinyls, rented a recording space and got a kick ass drum kit and sampled the whole thing for you.

We love 90’s Hardcore and we wanted to bring you a natural sounding yet punchy kit that delivers roundhouse kicks right to your jaw. This puts pizzamakers and Gorilla Stomps in your songs.
